|Milton, Nova Scotia
Constructed in 1919, to honour those service men who were killed in action during World
War I and World War II.
The monument was erected through the efforts of the Womens Institute of Milton. It was
originally placed in the Milton Cemetery, but in 1995 was moved to the newly developed
Tupper Park so it could be more visible and accessible to the public.
Tupper Park is situated on the west bank of the Mersey River, adjacent to the
bridge. This bridge is two kilometres upstream from the Town of Liverpool, Queens
Country, Nova Scotia.
The names of those who died during the war of 1914 - 1918 are listed on the left and
right side of the Pedestal. The names of those who died during the war of 1939 - 1945
are listed on a grey granite slab attached to the base of the monument.
On the front of the Pedestal there is a carved wreath in "bas-relief" with the etchings
of the crossed rifle bayonets fixed piercing the center of the wreath.
